Why we're here...

People make mistakes. When it comes to writing, authors often make LOTS of mistakes. While some writers struggle with grammar, others find it difficult to control being too “wordy.” Still, some aren’t quite sure what to include…and what to leave out.

Often, authors are so emotionally involved in their own work that they fill pages with great ideas but fail to express their true intent with the best word choices. First Editing specializes in fixing mistakes, beautifying English, and transforming drafts into literary masterpieces.
